I have now repeated this effort installing from a different mirror and obtained the same results (a setup.exe that is referencing _vswprintf in ntdll.dll.)
Please review the following outlining what I've done and indicate, what, if anything, I am doing wrong, or at least differently from you and/or Corinna.
Start setup, pass through dialogs to mirror selection, select (previous attempt used, then proceed to point of package selection, and click on primary (first/top-leve) tree item until 'install' appears (so selecting to generally install everything.)  Proceed with installation allowing it to complete.  
Following instructions on
checkout the source from cvs, and then review the readme instructions, which instruct to use the '' script, followed by 'make', steps which I followed.  (I have done this both in a separate directory from source, and within the source directory, on various attempts, always with the same bad result (_vswprintf missing).)
I have additionally attempted to use Corinna's alternate directions of the direct ./configure --host/--target, (which I note Corinna presumably can't have successfully done withOUT the other commands in, since there is no configure in CVS to use without those other steps having been done, so think her instructions as to what she did were either incomplete, or, she did _not_ actually try with a from-scratch checkout when she was examining my original report.)
Should I provide a config.log/.status, or ?, from my efforts for review to see what might be different from your environment(s)?
